Presented by James Goel, MIPI Technical Steering Group Chair and Rick Wietfeldt, MIPI Alliance Board of Directors, Security Working Group Co-Chair

This presentation brings you up to speed on all the latest developments within MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS) – a framework that provides a full-stack, end-to-end sensor/display-to-ECU solution for autonomous driving and ADAS systems that leverage existing MIPI CSI-2®, DSI-2℠ and VESA eDP/DP protocols.

The presentation explains how the latest advancements make it even easier for developers to integrate MIPI A-PHY into automotive E/E architecture, and how the adoption of A-PHY as an IEEE standard expands access in the ecosystem. It also covers how the recently released MIPI Camera and Display Service Extensions (CSE and DSE) and associated Protocol Adaptation Layers (PALs) enable developers to embed functional safety and security functionality natively at the “edge” – within sensor, display and ECU components themselves.
